  • 1 tbsp light miso paste
  • 3 tbsp white wine (you could also use chicken broth if you don't want to use wine)
  • 1 tsp butter (optional)
  • 1 tbsp whole mustard
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard or you could use stoneground mustard
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 4 wild salmon filets
  • 1 tsp avocado oil , coconut oil, or olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • chives and lemon wedges for garnish


  • Heat a small sauce pot on medium heat.
  • Add the miso paste, white wine and butter (optional) to the pot. Cook till the miso paste melts.
  • Add both the mustards and the honey. Stir till the honey is melted and all are well combined.
  • Set aside.
  • Heat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Heat an oven proof frying pan to medium high heat.
  • Pat the salmon fillets dry and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • When the pan is hot, add the oil to the pan and spread it around. Add the salmon fillets to the pan skin side up (if there is skin on one side).
  • Let the salmon cook on that side for about 3 to 4 mins or until it has a small crust on the top and is getting browned. Flip the salmon and cook for another 2 or 3 mins then slide the pan into the oven and cook for 5 - 8 mins depending on how thick your salmon is.
  • Remove from the oven.
  • Put each salmon filet on a plate and glaze each fillet with the miso sauce. Serve with vegetables and rice or just vegetables. We like broccoli and carrots.
